Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey Perfume Review

Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Being a perfume lover comes with its (un)fair share of heartbreaks. When you take up this “hobby”, you risk falling in love with a perfume that will be discontinued without an explanation or reformulated without an announcement.

Today, I’m discussing a few of… Continue reading | 8 Comments

EauMG’s August 2017 Favorites

Dohany Street Synagogue

August was a busy month. I went to Budapest. We had a great time. However, it was 100º-107° so that wasn’t that great. (Also, a reminder that I’m never traveling in August ever again).

I’ll approve and respond as soon as I can. If you don’t see your comment after posting, that’s why. I haven’t approved them yet.

EauMG’s Perfume Picks for Summer 2017

I kept meaning to post this sooner, but I’ve been lazy enjoying summer. If you’re looking for something to compliment summer, here are my suggestions:

tropical perfumes

Tropical/Beach Scents

The perfumes that smell like the beach or at least make you feel like a glamorous beach bum. 

Arielle Shoshana EDP – This is a passion fruit fragrance so that already comes across as tropical. For me, it reminds me of summer drinking batido de maracuyá. Retails for $125 at Arielle Shoshana. Review… Continue reading | 10 Comments
